Matskhvarishi village, Latali community, Svaneti

The Church of the Holy Archangels in Matskhvarishi village in the Latali community in Svaneti is C14th. As with other later churches in Svaneti, its relevance to this project is the fact that it preserves and reflects earlier traditions - not least that Svaneti has the largest concentration of frescoes in Georgia with some dating back to the C9th-C10th. This church has remnants of the Svan practice of decorating church exteriors with C16th frescoes still extant on the apse exterior. This is especially unusual given the harsh climate of Svaneti in the winter months.
